Coconut Pecan Brown Sugar Dessert Waffles
2 eggs, separated
2 cups buttermilk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 ½ cups flour
½ cup cornstarch
1 Tbsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
3 Tbsp sugar
Separate the egg yolks and whites, and beat together the egg yolks, buttermilk, vegetable oil, and vanilla to combine.
Whisk to combine the flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt. Set aside
Combine the leftover egg whites with the sugar, and whip to stiff peaks (if you lift the beaters straight out of the egg whites, then invert the beaters, the egg white should stand up on its own as a stiff peak).
Stir the buttermilk liquid into the flour mixture (don't overmix, make sure the batter is a little lumpy), then fold in the egg whites, being careful not to deflate them.
Pour the batter into preheated waffle maker and cook for about 3-4 minutes. The waffles won't be finished until there is NO steam coming from your waffle maker.
